The FBI Destroyed This Man's Life With Bogus Spying Accusations

For the last year, many Americans have believed that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer was targeted for kidnapping last fall by a group of domestic terrorists.

Thoughts on the Sixth Circuit Ruling Against the CDC Eviction Moratorium

As co-blogger Jonathan Adler explains, today the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit issued its decision in Tiger Lily, LLC v.

As Jonathan notes, the decision is unsurprising because it reaches the same conclusion...

Man Says Oklahoma Police Seized $140K From Him Without Cause

A New Mexico man says Oklahoma sheriff's deputies seized more than $140,000 from him and his business partner on baseless suspicion of drug trafficking, and a local news outlet found the records to back up his story.

Women Are on the Verge of Being Forced Into Military Conscription Due to a Perverse Notion of 'Equality'

The Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday approved a language change in the $768 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would expand the "Selective Service"—the oxymoronically named requirement under threat of imprisonment for 18-year-old males to submit their names to a national registry of potential military conscripts—to include...

Short Circuit: A Roundup of Recent Federal Court Decisions

Please enjoy the latest edition of Short Circuit, a weekly feature from the Institute for Justice. Motorists who get traffic tickets in rural Louisiana can talk to the judge, who, it just so happens, is often the mayor. The results are outrageous.

Sixth Circuit Concludes CDC Eviction Moratorium Is Unlawful
